COVID-19 Facts

Living in the "New Normal"

The Marion County  FRN has been awarded a COVID-19 disparities grant to aid in keeping our community safe and educated. Despite innovations in modern medicine like COVID-19 vaccinations, we are still living in the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

COVID 19 pandemic fatigue is the state of being worn out about the precautionary measures and the threat of COVID-19.  People in many nations have become tired of the restrictions and guidelines, leading to complacency and a decrease in vigilance.  Even the social impacts of lockdowns and other measures can lead to fatigue and apathy.  Some people have even accepted misinformation about the pandemic, either underestimating the severity of the situation or believing that the virus is a hoax. Covid-19 is not a hoax!  

 

Please remember, the pandemic is far from over.  New variants  of the virus continue to emerge, and the pandemic continues to have devastating impacts especially in low-income countries.   Always be aware and informed of this evolving situation and remain vigilant, even if it seems the situation is improving.

Still feeling sick and lethargic?

Some people who have been infected with the COVID-19 virus can experience long-term effects from their infection known as post-COVID conditions (PCC) or long COVID. These conditions can last weeks, months, or longer.

Emerging research has shown that 1 in 5 people who have contracted the virus will experience symptoms of long COVID. Current research has found over 200 symptoms. 

The FRN is currently developing resource guides to update the community on this new diagnosis.
